Black Swan, for the third time, in theatres. To be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing it again. I love that movie.
Good movie, but not truly great, in my opinion.

It's not perfect, but it's got incredible cinematography and direction that also happens to be the style I love. It also benefits greatly from being rewatched, in a good way.
The cinematography kind of bugged me. Like I mentioned in the Oscar thread, Black Swan pulls off some pretty stunning camera work. When it feels like it. It seems when the characters aren't either dancing or in the midst of a hallucination, little thought was put into the camera work, and it just looks sloppy at some points.

Those scenes benefit from having a lack of style though, since imo it helps the film feel somewhat uneasy and almost volatile, reflecting Nina's mental state.

I don't feel that, because they started doing that at the beginning of the movie, before she started to collapse.

Here's another theory: The perfect and imperfect cinematography reflected the dancing styles of the white swan and the black swan?

And either way, it's a matter of opinion whether or not the cinematography was good.

It is pretty stupid, but I enjoyed the movie too much to let something like that hurt/ruin it, especially that late in the film.

It actually wouldn't have bothered me as much as it does had the rest of the film not been as good as it was.

The only scene I didn't like was when Nina's mother bought her a cake and was outraged when Nina refused. That was a little.... dumb and extreme.
Oh, and the restaurant scene when Lily orders a cheeseburger. What is that thing she gets? It's definitely not a cheeseburger.

I could nitpick this movie to pieces, but I prefer not too. The one thing about that legitimately annoyed me was the ending, as discussed.

I watched Blade Runner, technically I guess for the first time (I watched it when I was young, but I didn't understand or really appreciate it). It was the Final Cut. Loved it, of course.

The most recent film I watched was The Shining. Come on! That movie's a classic. I really sympathize with Jack Torrance in that film. I hope that doesn't say anything about my personality...

Nah, but I've seen that film tons of times.

The most recent film I've seen that was NEW was True Grit. Good film. That's it. Good film.


My friend recently watched "Antichrist", and he was the only person I've met who responded with "it was funny".

I actually think the film is funny too. People get all grossed out by films like Antichrist and A Serbian Film, my good friend ends up thinking those kinds of films are funny. I'm the same way. The Shining, for example, is a comedy to me! I love that film. Kubrick's the best.

It's been way too long since I've sat down to watch a movie. I need to see what the Tampa Theater's showing this month...

Just got back from a showing of Barney's Version. It was pretty good, but the ending bugged me. It felt tacked on.

The Thin Man-1934

Fantastic classic film based on the book by Dashiell Hammett. If you love snappy lines and detective stories, check this one out.

Is that an accurate count? Have you actually seen The Room eleven times, or did you just throw a random number out there?

1 hour 53 minutes isn't very long.
